Chris Childers, author of the poem, contacted us about producing the piece as a wedding gift to his brother. Chris was the instructor of Creative Writing at St. Andrews School, Middletown, DE. St. Andrews was feathered in the movie, Dead Poets Society, one of Ray's favorite movies that centers around teaching.

We are hoping that we can set up some kind of creative connection with St. Andrews and their students.

The type was borrowed from Lindsay Schmittle of Gingerly Press, Landenberg, PA who had purchased the type from Henry Morris of Bird & Bull Press, Newtown, PA.
